Yes it’s a wonderful moment for free speech: Menifee Union School District in Riverside County, CA reinserted Merriam Webster’s 10th edition dictionary back into a  slot on library shelves after  school officials received a public flogging for yanking the book.

And it’s a wonderful moment for parents, who  will have the option of of an alternative dictionary without the offending term.

But for me the most wonderful moment was seeing the AP headline “Oral Sex Flap.” Thank you, Jesus.
